    The issue is that there are Islamic governments who execute gay people, that is pretty non-existent or at least very rare in Christian societies and from what we see with the Muslim immigrants in Europe there are some major problems - they are trying to force diversity on Europe by group of people who hate diversity.. And I am going by all of those questionnaire studies they did on Muslims in Europe, not just my opinion. You can look them up. Now that said, you are absolutely correct - there have been many, MANY peaceful Muslim groups and countries who have allowed other cultures and religions to live among them peacefully. And as I argued in another thread that is fairly active on the topic right now, I think the OP is Trump Supporters or something, there has been a lot that the west has done to foment the negative attitudes that Muslims have today and we need to stop doing that. But we also have to look at the consequences of our actions responsibly, such as bringing people who we have angered into our country when we could be helping the refugees resettle in the Middle East for 1/10th of the cost, through say private charities.

    Well he certainly isn't thinking the situation through very thoroughly, I have to admit. The example of the Christian photographer being forced to take photographs at a gay wedding is pretty extreme, he admits, it did happen, he admits, yet he is ok with it because slippery slope we might discriminate against Muslims (a religion that likes to execute gay people and is generally extremely unaccepting of other cultures and lifestyles).. Now, most likely the photographer will go to a wedding like any other wedding, it shouldn't be a problem imo (although in principle that isn't up to me to decide) - but let's take it to the extreme and say the gay wedding turned out to be more like a gay pride parade, a lot of gay men in risque clothing and such, You really want to force a Christian to take photos of not only what they consider immoral behavior on a macro level, but immodest dress and other immoral activity actually occurring at the wedding? That's pretty insane.. I mean, he says he doesn't want to force churches to marry gay people, but why force wedding photographers to be involved? The thing that sucks, and this is why although I wish he was more principled I'm willing to put up with this stuff somewhat, is there really isn't a good answer to give if he wants to bring in Sanders supporters, which he is doing a pretty good job of doing. If he came out against the CRA almost nobody on the left would support him, he would lose half his support in the polls. So he is essentially taking the status quo position here. If he says it is ok with photographers to discriminate, why not cake bakers? Why not everybody? It might be right, but like he said it's a black-hole issue that will run his campaign into the ground.

    As far as Israel, I think the entire concept and implementation of Israel was a huge conspiracy. So huge, in fact, that the people who set it up likely helped promote and fund Hitler and the Holocaust. The Holocaust was an excellent excuse to get the US and other countries to come in and protect the new Jewish settlers in Israel. Apparently a lot of the evidence for the Holocaust comes from Russian documents after they came in and defeated Germany, they were the first ones to get to the camps. Perhaps there was some exaggerations to make their enemy look bad which is very common - and I'm not saying Hitler was a good guy they made out to look bad, more like a really bad guy who they made out to look like evil incarnate (and, well, maybe he was that too). But the point is, why did the US turn away Jews during WWII? I would have allowed them to immigrate here to the US. The population of Israel today is 8 million people. Why not let them immigrate here if they want? I think that would be better than causing all these messes in the Middle East, then taking in millions of Muslim refugees into the US and Europe just to protect Israel.

    Ok, look, I think Europe may end up going to war with radical Islam soon, Muslim immigration is totally destroying Europe and I think we can agree on that. The problem I have with your statement is mostly the part in bold. Now, I've been told that the Koran has two books - the first book is more peaceful like the New Testament of the Bible and the second book is more like the Old Testament of the Bible. In the case of Christianity, the more peaceful New Testament actually takes precedent over the Old Testament, and in Islam the more violent second part of the Koran takes precedent over the first part. Of course, I've heard from some Muslims that is not really true, but it does seem to be a valid interpretation based on the beliefs of many Muslims. So I am very weary of Islam and I think you could be right that no matter what, some Muslims will hate us. However, where I disagree with you is your premise that what we do does not affect individual Muslims and cause them to be even more extreme in their beliefs. In fact, we literally brainwashed millions of Afghan children starting in the late 70s, please do yourself a favor and read this article: From U.S., the ABC's of Jihad https://www.washingtonpost.com/archive/politics/2002/03/23/from-us-the-abcs-of-jihad/d079075a-3ed3-4030-9a96-0d48f6355e54/

    In theory you are right, the government coming in to decree how much your property is worth is wrong and I am completely against eminent domain. But with a few million dollars she could have gone off and lived in a mansion and never worried about money for the rest of her life. It was a stupid decision, but hey, the free market allows people to make stupid decisions and I support their right to do it. But let us not pretend it was a GOOD decision that this old lady made. This old lady is one of the reasons why eminent domain exists - some people irrationally hold onto things without considering the benefits of letting them go and so after that happened enough times and there were enough extreme examples of say someone who won't sell their $40k shack in the middle of nowhere for $500k to the train company to put in train tracks, and now they have to spend a couple million to divert the tracks in another direction they were able to convince government that some people needed convincing. I disagree that the government should take this role, but it is stupid people like this old lady who made enough examples for people who think they know better than others and should be able to make decisions for them who promoted these laws in the first place. No, that's not true, it probably went more like this. "Trump Inc.: Ma'am, we want to build a casino where your house is, we would like to buy your house. Stupid old lady: It's not for sale!!!

    The government has been discriminating against business owners for 50 years. Gary Johnson takes the status quo position on the issue, which is a C. He didn't say that he would vote for TPP if it freed up trade? I thought that was exactly what he said.. his support for TPP was conditional on that, and previously he was against TPP, that was only 4 or 5 months ago.

    That "scumbag" offered her $1.5 million for her home, she refused to sell it. A few years later she sold it on the market for something like $500k. What an idiot. That "scumbag" was trying to make her a million dollars richer, she was just being obstinate, which is her right, it's just dumb.

    C - status quo, businesses have not been allowed to discriminate for 50 years. He said he would sign the TPP if, AND ONLY IF it freed up trade. That's actually a libertarian response and could be graded as an 'A'. I wouldn't grade it as an 'A' because a good libertarian should be aware of the globalist plot and know that the trade deals they develop will never free up trade. But you can't grade him that poorly on it considering it is actually a libertarian response.

    I suppose that's possible, but it also seems reasonable that the conversation went more along the lines of what was written in the OP. Did you read the OP by any chance? I got the feeling from reading it that the OP didn't even really read it.

    Actually it appears Pence had a long conversation with Donald Trump and Trump convinced him to change his mind on the issue. Good for him. Still not sure why CPUd wants everybody to know about it :confused: I mean, you would think somebody who supported Hillary not that long ago would be ok with other people changing their mind about political issues, so certainly CPUd has no problem with Pence changing his mind on the issue. CPUd must want us all to know that Pence is against the TPP now :confused:

    3:00 I might give him a "B-" on promotes liberty - he promotes liberty all the time even though other times he says he uses a pragmatic approach to get there. As far as issues go, I don't know if any issues that he deserves below a C on. There are many issues he deserves an 'A'. Overall I still think B or B- is pretty fair.

    *thumbsup* :) The conversion of the Slavs was extremely peaceful. It was at that time my patron saint Cyril, minister to the Slavs, and his companion Methodius invented the Cyrillic alphabet and made Church Slavonic possible. This also allowed the Slavs to become literate generally and in Bible scriptures particularly. This ministry, after a few generations, made possible the Golden Age of Russian Literature(Pushkin, etc) and general enlightenment of all Slavic people. :cool: There were no decrees, AFAIK.
